per barrel. that's just about where opec members want them. opec will be meeting tomorrow to see who will publicly lead the group. joining us for , zendana hari. good morning. what are your expectations for this meeting? >> we aren't expecting any major surprises so far based on what the ministers coming into the meeting have been saying publicly and even privately. officially, opec will stick to its 30 million a day barrel target. that covers all the members of the group. that would be actually production has been consistently higher ever since this target wab set. almost 1.1 million barrels above the target is what opec has cut into producing. >> heading into a meeting like this, incident isn't just about the supply, it's about demand. we've seen some softening in global production. how much will these countries have to produce next year? is it going to be a demand story ultimately as we look at global growth or is it going to be a supply story, about the middle east and where the flow is actually coming from? >> i think it will be a supply story. we saw entire libyan production ou

countries that do not wish us well. basically, opec countries. these countries, in my opinion, have been very cooperative. libya, kuwait, uae. they have all helped us contained iran. they have some connection with an 9/11. -- it is true they have some connection with 9/11, but over all our relationship with these countries have been very good. >> i think it has been said what you said in your first point. the fact that we may reduce the amount of oil we import, it does not decouple was from the world oil market. canada and norway are both exporters, but their citizens pay of the market price for a gallon of gasoline. we said exactly what you said on your first point. on your second point, the opec nations in being friends of the united states, i think the answer to that is that both sides have had a relationship that has been economically necessary, but i do not think the opec cartel conducts its affairs in a way to benefit the united states of america. they conduct their affairs so that they do not kill the goose that laid the golden egg. if you turn into the record on pages 8 and 9, yo
rocket by one it has overtaken iran to become the second largest opec producer. there's no doubt the energy sector hold the keys to iraq's reconstruction and the world energy supply. >> that's the latest in business headlines for this hour. here is a look at markets in the region. >>> they've told u.s. agencies that have exthe ended. the rocket will be carrying a satellite into orbit. the real goal is to test the long range missile technology. north korea's committee of space technology said engineers found a technical problem with the first stage of the three stage rocket. the committee announced it will extend the period for lauhing byne week. north korea said it will launch the rocket between december 6th and the 22nd. the international maritime organization, and the international telecommunication union said they were told of the extension on monday. the maritime and aviation bodies use it for flight trajection. they have not provided information about a satellite's frequency or orbit. the international community should take serious action against north korea if it goes ahead
is controlled by the opec cartel, the organization of petroleum exporting countries, which meets twice a year to establish quotas in order to keep prices at an acceptable level for the opec exporters. the national oil companies of opec and other countries around the world hold the vast majority of oil reserves, over 80%. they produce only 40% of the world's petroleum every day. there's a chart in the report that you have that shows us graphically. if there's ever an example of a market that is not free, it is that. nobody operates and acts in that manner in a purely free market. in fact, if opec were doing what it does abroad in this country, it would be a crime and a violation of our antitrust laws. so the prescription that the energy security leadership council came up with several years ago, which was very impactful in the energy security -- independence and security act of 2007, was it? 2008? was based on our report in 2007, which said that the united states should maximize its oil and gas production, that it should significantly reduce consumption and improve conservation, which led to t

.13 trillion of our debt. now, this is interesting. out of this debt number three on the list is opec. opec is an entity. that's the countries of ecuador and venezuela and india and bahrain and iran and iraq and kuwait and amman and qatar and saudi arabia and the u.a.e., algeria, ga been a, -- gabon, nigeria. they're now number three on the list and they own $267 billion of our debt. brazil comes in at number four, $250.5 billion. and then number five on the list, new to the list, the top five list, the caribbean banking centers. now own $240.4 billion of u.s. debt. by the way, caribbean banking centers are the bahamas, bermuda, cayman islands, netherlands and panama. this is who owns us. this is who owns our debt. and this is why on this side of the aisle, what we continue to say is the spending has to be dealt with. we have seen -- we've heard from everybody. we are hearing from economists all around the globe. and they repeatedly say what we are saying, what we've been saying for years as week of come to this floor. is that we have a spending problem. the spending has to be dealt with. w
are where opec comes in and start to address crisis or supply in particular or technically how the market trades itself around that band. there was never really a premise to where people were looking for that to exceed 27 or '8, it started getting into the 30 level because of fundamental breakdowns. and i think that's the reason why a lot of people are starting to look at the historics to see if we hit that moving average which is much lower. >> michael gur ka from spectrum asset management, thank you so much. and thank you, everyone, for tuning into the show. i'm kelly evans. ross westgate will be back here tomorrow morning. now it's time for "squawk box" in the u.s. we'll keep an eye on the markets. have a great day. >>> good morning. president obama and john boehner meet face-to-face on sunday. does it mean we're any closer to the solution to the fiscal cliff? >>> a news conference by chairman ben bernanke, set for wednesday.
is the supply side. at the moment, really we've got to see what opec wants to do. last year, the impact of the embargo wasn't -- was like a six week impact and it was forgotten about very quickly. and if you think about it, last year was a very, very steady year for oil prices. wti, as you said, is going to post the lowest rise in several years. in fact, i looked back in my forecast that i had for wti at the beginning of 2012. and it was $111 $a barrel. i moved it down to $110 in the middle of the year thinking it might get a little weaker and poked around and did absolutely nothing. >> i wonder whether the question is going to come back again into the oil markets given that we're looking at the israeli elections coming up in january. but back to the u.s. story, i find it hugely interesting, this notion of u.s. becoming energy independent on its own. do you really think it will happen? because i still talk to a couple of people in the oim and gas industry that say, you know what? it's a far cry from the reality out there. we're still going to see the middle east being the dominating oi
with the opec meeting next week as well. back to you. >> thank you very much sharon epperson. >> we did want to note for the viewers, a fairly large hedge fund that was in the news for not good reasons. diamondback capital management, a fund run by richard shimmal and larry kipanzi. richard schimel is the e ex-brother in law. lock capital management. two of those had already closed. level global has closed, in fact one of us founders, andrew chasen is on trial right now. diamondback went down to about $2 billion, but as of this morning, that is no long ter case. the hedge fund saying that given redemption requests came in about 26% of total asset ors $520 million. it would be left with $1.45 billion apparently that's just not enough to run the successful hedge fund. they did have 140 or so people working for them. not sure how much they have trended that. as of now, their seven-year track record at this point. but they have spending redemptions as you might expect. rushing all of the assets to fund holders. often times in these cases, you'll see people run out and look at 13, and say oh, wha
